FRIDAY NIGHT RAMBLINGS

SEPTEMBER 12, 2002 [FOOT NOTE}
Greets and Huggers. The evening of 9/12/2002. Thank you all for your private e-mails: many about me questioning my faith. Thank you for your insights and your concerns. :)
I believe, God's greatest gift to us is "Free Will" .... to chose to believe or not ... to chose between "right" or "wrong", (we each have a "spark" that compells us to seek meaning ... a spark that compells us to make sense out of what some believe is a randon universe ... maybe it it is.) Some believe that we are inherently "evil" or "sinful". If that were true, why would God give us "Free Will"? Wouldn't we make the "wrong" choice in each case?
I believe it is God's Will that we test and question our Faith, otherwise, "Free Will" would mean nothing. It is by questioning our faith ... that we renew it. I remain a "believer".
Bad things happen to good people .... <smiling> .... but good things also happen to bad people. Guess ... some things ... just require ... "faith".
Karl (the dumb ole country lawyer from Holden, Missouri)
